The Trust’s Aims

The NINEVEH Charitable Trust (RCN 256025, registered 1968) supports a broad range of UK-based projects and activities of benefit to the General Public, with an emphasis on promoting a better understanding of the countryside.

Our Objectives were set out by our Founders in 1968 and subsequently modified by a Deed of Declaration in 1992. We promote:


  1. The health, welfare and education of the general public
  2. The study and appreciation of agriculture, silviculture, ecology and land management
  3. The study and appreciation of land and estate management that encourages conservation of the countryside.
The Trustees shall endeavour to support proposals that meet these Aims and that are for the benefit of the public or relevant charitable bodies.

Please NoteWe are not faith-based and are open to applicants of all diversities. We have no connection with three faith-based charities of similar name which were registered with the Charity Commission and the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator subsequently (namely, the Nineveh Trusts: RCN292545 registered 1985, RCN 1044709 registered 1995, and SC038029 registered 2007).
